No more slip ups warns Liverpool skipper

LIVERPOOL skipper Steven Gerrard believes his side cannot afford any more slip ups if they are to secure Champions League Football next season.

LIVERPOOL skipper Steven Gerrard believes his side cannot afford any more slip ups if they are to secure Champions League Football next season.

The Reds' hopes of a top four finish were boosted at the weekend thanks to a 1-0 win against fierce rivals Everton while Manchester City, Tottenham and Aston Villa all dropped points.

But with Arsenal next up for Rafa Benitez's men, Gerrard believes they must build on Saturday's derby win.

“Everybody is still on a high and now we have got to take that high into the next game,” he said.

“It's a tough one, Arsenal away always is, but we have used beating Everton as a platform in the past and we've got to do it again.

“We want to extend our run and go on to better things as we can't afford any slip-ups because there is pressure coming from Tottenham, Manchester City and Aston Villa.”
